of the cold war and more members from russia, even as george bush did, the former republic of the soviet union. into this alliance and you wonder why the russians are upset about that. and then finally clinton lost his nerve on things of this country needed to do in terms of international agreements. we need to be part of this be part of this ban on cluster bombs. all of the nations have signed these packs. it is what they call the rogue nations, and then we have the united states. then we get to george bush, and it is possible to talk about those eight years. the fact that this country reelected him does not say very much for any of us anywhere. always had misuse of intelligence to a certain degree. the mexican war in the 1840s, the spanish-american war. in vietnam as well. that was based on the misuse of intelligence. but you never had systematic distortion of intelligence the way that you had in the run-up to the iraqi war. you've never had someone tell the president it would be a slamdunk not help you make up your mind. but to help you convince the american people that we need to undertake
. he was scheduled to run in australia, brazil, the u.s., the uk and russia. while pistorius is in court on tuesday for a bail hearing, reeva's family says they'll be a memorial service for her as producers of her reality show released this farewell message from her, meant to be to the cast, but which now becomes her last words, her last good-bye. >> i take with me so many amazing memories and things that are in here and in here that i'll treasure forever. i'm going to miss you all so much. i love you very, very much. >> what a sad story that is. robyn kurnow reporting for us. we'll have more on that later here in "the situation room" as well. other news we're following including some painful budget cuts that will be felt by all of us. they're not only days away, they could affect you in some unexpected ways. plus, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always wa
of policy from the united states. >> from the u.s. now, there is no agreement with russia. russia is rearming assad, propping up the regime, and that was the contentious part of today's meeting. but what kerry seemed to be hinting at is that under pressure from the brits and certainly from the syrian opposition which initially said that they would not meet in rome with him in a couple of days, he called them and persuaded them saying show up, we've got something for you. this meeting will be worth your while. what he said to us is this is a right moment. it is a new secretary of state. it is a president on a second term. wait and see what happens. now -- >> you were staying that hillary clinton, leon panetta both wanted to arm the syrian rebel wrshz. >> arm some of them. >> the president vetoed it. you think he is telegraphing something. >> i think he thinks he is telegraphing something. i think he may think he has more running room than he has. we've seen that the white house really controls foreign policy more than the state department. hillary clinton didn't challenge that. she
russia and the united states. it's not true any more. our intelligence has told us since 2007 that iran will have that nuclear capability and a delivery system by 2015. so it's other countries that are involved in that. the question i would ask you, in your book you wrote that we must once again convince the world that america has a clear intention of fulfilling the nuclear disarmament committee -- commitments that we have made. the question, a bit more recently you said, i believe providing necessary resources for a nuclear modernization of the triad should be a national priority. do you stand by your last statement? >> my last -- >> your last statement saying -- i believe that providing the necessary resources for nuclear modernization of the triad should be a national priority? >> absolutely should be. i agree with that. and that's what the policy of this administration is. >> well, i'm merely bringing out the inconsistency because when you were involved with supporting the global zero or whatever that group, the organization was, their declaration is, quote, we the undersigned belie
on this day in history in 1908 sergei rachmaninoff premiered his symphony number two in st. petersburg, russia. rachmaninoff was a technical pianist. history records he rarely missed a note despite the enormous complexity of his compositions. but you chose to use your hands to orchestrate other kinds of efforts. you worked both ends of pennsylvania avenue. you and sylvia advocated for the purity of public service. then the nation called again and you answered again. so for the past four years you have led those in the intelligence and defense communities, those trusted with protecting our nation and our families. you have led the fight for the proper amount of resources. you balanced the threat of external attack with the threat of internal insolvency. you once said diversity in america is as old as this nation itself. you did more than just speak about it. you took action. you have insured our forces will be able to draw upon the very best this nation has to offer. you have overseen the fielding of new capabilities to meet the threats of tomorrow, and you have demonstrated that steadfast comm
.t.a.r.t. treaty with russia was an example of traditional diplomacy at its best and then working it through the congress was an example of traditional bipartisan support at its best. but we also have been working with partners around the world to create a new institution, the nuclear security summit to keep dangerous materials out of the hands of terrorists. be conducted intense diplomacy with major powers to impose crippling sanctions against iran and north korea. but to enforce the sanctions, we also enlisted banks insurance companies and high-tech international financial situations. today iran's oil tankers sit idle and its currency has taken a massive hit. now this brings me to a third lever, it economics. everyone knows how important that is. but not long ago it was thought that business drove markets and governments drove geopolitics. will, those two if they ever were separate have certainly converged. so creating jobs at home is now part of the portfolio of diplomats abroad. they are arguing for common economic rules of the road especially in asia so we can make trade a race to the t
's point, i don't think we're doing much. i think on the diplomatic front we have hid behind russia and on the military front we have been fairly relevant to the flow of this conflict on the ground. and we sort of have had this idea of a splendid distance from syria but are not able to maintain that indefinitely. >> suarez: but does that narrow your choices when you decide what you is to do, andrew, to fight that irrelevance as vali called it. >> the problem is when you get involved in a game late, you're cornered. and you also have to intervene in ways you might not have wanted to do from the beginning. so in the case of ot bama administration very reticent to get involved with armed groups, but now we are looking at something very real. real threat of the use of chemical weapons. the possibility of a failed state in a divided state in syria. and also a haven for terrorists and the propensity for all of that to spill over its borders into the vital allies like israel, like turkey, iraq, jordan and so on and also into lebanon grows every day with no end in sight. >> suarez: but you
if that happens, we need to do less with less. >> russia will surpass u.s. defense spending in terms of overall percent of gdp in just two years. china is slated to overtake the u.s. in 2035. >> we've seen double digit increase s in chinese defense spending for more than 15 years now, and that really should not only give pause to the united states but it really should be a source of concern for the countries in the region as well. >> reporter: two years ago, then defense secretary robert gates brow beat nato allies to spent two percent of their gdp on defense. when france wanted to send forces into mali to counter al-qaeda in recent weeks, the u.s. had to provide the airlift and refueling because france needed u.s. help. >> these guys have been going gang busters, rolling out prototypes of advanced weapons systems, whether it's new missiles, aircrafts, new drone aircraft. >> others argue that even with the sequester, the u.s. budget will drafe dwarf it's adversari. >> if is h sequestration happeno from spenting 40 cents out of every dollar to 38 cents. >> reporter: u.s. taxpayers spent $7 liv 1
the session dumb. brian, i know that one of your favorite spies ever was anna chapman from russia. and she tended to dress up. >> steve: she used nail polish. >> gretchen: and used probably nail polish. can you hear me? >> brian: yeah, i can. i just never fell for her trap. i do believe there is a bigger story there. you know that. because she's hot and has a nice body, people fell for it. i believe the russians are still here. something serious happened overt weekend, i know it affected you guys. chris kyle, american hero, navy seal who set the record for sniper kills because every time he killed them, another one of our guys survived, he came out. he's adapted to life afterwards, best selling author. he lost his life trying to help a fellow marine adjust to life after serving. he was suffering from ptsd. joining us to put his life in perspective and his pass not guilty perspective is a good friend of our show, sean parnell. can i get your perspective on the type of guy your friend, chris kyle, was and is? >> yeah. chris kyle was an incredible person. all the headlines are that he's the m
does pick up from iraq you have saudi arabia, russia, other major oil producing countries that will be declining as far as their production is concerned. so this is only going to make up for that decline that we see in other major countries. the third big reason is demand is going to increase at a much higher rate than supply is. you look at china for example, per capita we consume 20 barrels per year in the united states. china is at 2. that's 1.2 billion people. imagine fit goes to 3 or 4 barrels a year. the increase in demand is going to out strip supply many times over. gregg: same thing with india. >> the reason i somewhat disagree with that, right there is great increasing demand. the whole his traoeft oil market has been that technological improvements that completely out stripped the demand for oil and we are seeing that now. there is a revolution going on because of fracking, because of or sopbt tal drilling technologies, that you look at what is happening in north today coat tarbgnorth dakota. every time we drill we find more oil there. i think the future is pret
at these numbers. by 2015, russia's defense spending as part of their gdp is expected to surpass the u.s. for the first time since the collapse of the soviet union. what would be the ramifications of that. other estimates show china is surpassing america in defense spending by 2035. glad to be joined by eric erickson *. good to have you with us today. what do you think about this? the news is out of the white house they will drop from two aircraft carriers to one in the persian gulf. should that concern americans? >> i think it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will se

of the last century, my grandparents fled the vicious anti-semitic programs of the stars of russia to come to america. widowed at a young age, my grandmother raised her two sons in a tiny apartment atop a grocery store that she and my grandfather had opened in downtown richmond. with little butter faith, thrift and hope for a better tomorrow, my grandma worked seven days a week to ensure that my dad and my uncle could realize the promise of this great country. and today, my children and i stand as proof of the possibility to what may have seemed to her then like an impossible dream. to uphold his legacy of those who have come before us, washington will need to make choices. and in a divided government, these choices are often tough. we in the house of majority remain committed to making those tough choices and stand ready to lead with this president. higher, milton wright once shouted from the air. higher. making life work for more working people, and also want to work is the best way to a future of higher growth and more opportunity. thank you very much.

this week. we are one year away from wentinter olympics in russia if they ever get any snow. is she going to be there? >> if i had to bet and given my record, i probably shouldn't put any money on it. i would say no. i love the fact that, you know, every time a surgeon does an operation on one of these athletes and he puts the mcl the acl and everything back together the way, you know, the way it should be, it's going to be fantastic. he or she will be back. everything is going to be perfect. they always have a great outcome, and i just think it's a little trickier than that. i think she's got a year. she could be -- the olympics is set up a little bit differently on skiing. i believe she could -- you know, they don't really have a trial the way other sports do. so she could be -- she could compete in some events, you know, late in the year some of the ski season late in the year. possibly still, um make the team. i guess there is also a discretionary spot they could give her? >> i hope she makes it. surgery for the second one to add because they didn't get i
